Exhibition Introduction by the Group
“MUZINZO” derives from a poem composed by Su Dongpo in the Song dynasty about 1,000 years ago, praising the wonder of the land and the creative person’s unlimited potential. The poem is included in his work, “Battle of Red Cliffs.”
We use the title MUZINZO to praise nature just as Su Dongpo did, but also to warn of the danger of modern civilization’s ongoing development. Hence, our themes are “ecology, energy saving, and sustainability.”

∞3 (Infinity 3)
Amanda Tseng, Chang Yih-Ming*, Tseng Ting-Yu
Japan and Taiwan are both situated in the Pacific Ring of Fire and share much the same nature and culture. Both have also, in recent years, experienced the awesome power of nature. Based on this, Chang Yih-Ming, a Taiwanese ceramic artist, and Amanda Tseng and Tseng Ting-Yu, two contemporary sumi ink artists living in Taipei, are engaged in creative activities taking “ecology, energy saving, sustainability” as keywords. For this exhibition, therefore, we have formed ∞3 (Infinity 3) so as to think about how people might learn from the past, look to the future, respect nature and learn to coexist with the natural world.
